This is my first time to stamp the images from the new, Flowing Flowers Stamp Set, and they are gorgeous! I love how the Distinktive stamps give natural shading, and using the Stamparatus to add color is so much fun!
To use the Stamparatus, I placed Basic White Cardstock on the Platform, and attached the larger flower to the lid. Then, I inked the flower with a Calypso Coral Ink Pad, avoiding the leaves and dots, and brought the lid down to stamp the paper.
Next, I colored the leaves and dots with a Just Jade Stampin’ Write Marker, and stamped the paper. This was followed by coloring areas with a Pale Papaya Stampin’ Write Marker. The magnet holds the paper in place, so you can stamp repeatedly on the same image without it moving. So cool! I call this the “ink to stamp” technique.
After coloring the main image, I stamped “Thank you” in Memento Black Ink, also from the Flowing Flowers Stamp Set. Lastly, I stamped the triple flower image in Pale Papaya Ink.
After coloring, I used the second largest Stitched Rectangles Die for cutting my floral design, and placed it on Dimensionals. Then, I used the largest Stitched Rectangles Die to cut Pattern Party Designer Paper for a nice, black & white border. This was glued to a Basic Black card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.
Finally, I added three Classic Matt Dots to complete my thank you card. Just have to say, the sentiments are great in this set, and will be used many times. Check it out in my Product List below.
I was inspired by the color challenge at the Paper Players.
